OPPO PM-3 Planar Magnetic Headphones with Detachable Cable and Apple Controls & Mic - Black

More Views




Audiophile performance in portable form, OPPO PM-3 planar magnetic headphones combines natural sound, elegant styling, noise isolation to create your own stylish and lightweight portable listening heaven. With the PM-3 users can easily recreate the experience of listening to a pair of flagship headphones on a flagship amplifier or a high quality 2-channel speaker system in an optimized listening room, but in a portable form factor that can be taken anywhere.

OPPO PM-3 employs a planar magnetic driver that is developed from the driver in OPPO's EISA award-winning PM-1 headphones. Technological breakthroughs achieved during the PM-1's development, such as the 7-layer double-side voice coil diaphragm design and FEM-optimized neodymium magnet system, have enabled us to reduce the weight of the planar magnetic drivers while maintaining excellent sound quality and high sensitivity.

The PM-3 driver's smaller size and high sensitivity overcome the shortcomings of traditional planar magnetic technology such as being difficult to drive and heavy weight. This all-new 55 mm diameter round driver is especially suitable for a lightweight close-back design like the PM-3. The PM-3 maintains the very natural and smooth sound signature of the PM-1, and is tuned to have deep, tight bass and a touch of excitement.

The style and portability you’ve been looking for.


Unique Planar Magnetic Sound
Utilizing planar magnetic drivers derived from the award-winning PM-1 headphones, the PM-3 features deep bass, smooth midrange, and clear treble. The sound signature can be described as very natural and balanced, with plenty of emotion and impact.

Phase Coherence
When sound enters our ear, it has a planar wave front with all spectrum components in phase. A typical dynamic headphone driver disrupts this coherence with its phase irregularity, resulting in less than perfect signal peak reconstructions. OPPO's planar magnetic driver has much better phase coherency since all parts of the diaphragm are vibrating in concert without break up and delayed resonance.

Purely Resistive Impedance
OPPO's planar magnetic driver has a flat conductor pattern that does not have any inductive components. This eliminates inductance related inter-modulation distortion, which is especially common in dynamic drivers with high impedance and a high number of voice coil turns.

Advanced Technologies
OPPO's planar magnetic driver diaphragm has 7 layers of thin materials that provide excellent performance, reliability, and longevity. The construction of the diaphragm ensures that it is very stable under thermal stress and vibration. The diaphragm utilizes a spiralling pattern of flat aluminium conductors on either side of the driver. The double-sided design allows twice as many conductors to be placed within the magnetic field, which leads to higher sensitivity, better damping, and even drive force. FEM-optimized magnet system with very high energy Neodymium magnets is used to maximize sensitivity and consistency of the applied force over the driver area.

Optimized for Mobile Use
Many planar magnetic headphones have a sensitivity far below 100dB and require very powerful amplifiers to drive. The OPPO PM-3 has a sensitivity of 102dB, which allows it to be easily driven with mobile devices. Its low impedance works well with smartphones that ship with low impedance ear buds.

Lightweight and Truly Portable
With a weight of just 320g, the OPPO PM-3 is the world's first truly portable closed-back planar magnetic headphone. It folds flat and comes with a selvedge denim carrying case. When folded and protected in the carrying case, the PM-3 takes very little space in a briefcase or backpack.

Unparalleled Comfort
Many planar magnetic headphones weigh over 500g and are often uncomfortable to wear for more than a short period of time. Thanks to its light weight, plush padding and carefully calibrated clamping force, the OPPO PM-3 is a joy to listen for hours on end.

In-line Mic and Remote
The PM-3 is shipped with a 3 meter main cable and a 1.2m portable cable. Users can choose the best suitable cable for their mobile devices. Available selections include a cable with mic and controls for Apple devices, one with mic and button for Android and Windows phones, and one without mic.

Elegant Style
Hi-Fi products do not need to look ugly, and stylish products do not need to sound mediocre. The PM-3 sounds excellent, looks beautiful, and is equally at home in the fast-paced urban jungle as in the warmth of a dedicated listening room.

Material and Build Quality
The OPPO PM-3 is ruggedly constructed with strong metal and plush padding materials. The headphones have been tested to very high standards to withstand mechanical and environmental stress in order to guarantee exceptional performance throughout its lifespan.

Stability Consistency Reliability
Many planar magnetic headphones have large balance deviations between the left and right channels, and accurate stereo reproduction is contingent on having a very close match between the left and right channels. During the OPPO PM-3's manufacturing process, drivers are closely matched to ensure optimum stereo imaging and soundstage.

Selvedge Denim Carrying Case
The material is a stylish, high-end fabric that is prized for its ability to weather the elements and develop a unique aesthetic character over time, and the slim design of the case is a perfect match with the PM-3’s ability to fold flat, allowing the headphones to fit easily within a backpack or briefcase.

High quality headphones
by Barry on 05/12/2017
A very impressive pair of headphones that I'm using listening at home hooked up to a Shanling M2s DAP. Sound is very clean and accurate, but decent bass depth. Highly recommended.
Amazing clarity and sound quality
by Simon on 16/01/2017
These are my first move into the audiophile world after finally upgrading my music from mp3 to FLAC and the step up in quality is incredible.

The sound is crystal clear and warm adding a new dimension to my music collection - sounds are so easily identifiable and each instrument stands alone.

Vocals are given another dimension and music with close harmonies let you pick out eaxch voice easily.

Whatever type of music I listen is enhanced through the balance and level of each range although the bass is just a little short of what I like with my music.

The package is great, all cables handily supplied along with a sturdy carry case.

Why 4 stars and not 5?

My ears hurt a little after wearing these for several hours and, in an ideal world, the bass would be a little punchier - it lacks a tiny bit in this department for my liking.

Overall, for this price, I could not be happier and the look of surprise on my friends faces when they listen through them is a joy.
